(1998 – 1999)
Meaning bandname: The name is taken from the film of the same name. In principle there is no connection, the title just sounds cool.
History: Pascal and René want to start a band in the style of Shotmaker, Assfactor 4 and Heroin. After some time without a band, Anti is eager to play again. On account of a classified ad, they find Maurice and Mark. Together they form Office Killer somewhere at the end of 1998. Unfortunately the band only stays together for one year.
Lyrics: Mostly personal but also bigger topics as theme. Important fact is that the one who makes the lyrics didn’t fancy to write about topics that didn’t relate to himself. Something that happens a bit too much within the punk/hardcore area. Also some criticism towards the compartmentalization within the lefty scene was a beloved topic.
Description: A combination of all fave bands of the members… Assfactor 4, Fourhundred Years, Frail, His Hero Is Gone and lots more. Some people would decribe it as emo but… meaning the real emo and not collegerock.
